While we will have a new and different blog up later today, I decided to post the question to our readers this morning. Here is Stephanie's comment/question:
I have "inherited" an adopted child from China. She was originally adopted by an older woman and a younger man (now my husband). I often wonder how good the background check was on the birth [note: she originally typed in "adoptive" mother here, but I assume it was a Freudian slip] mother. I hear it is better today, but back in 1993 it was not so good.Please leave your comment here.
I would never want to be without my Step Daughter, but I don't know what kind of good system that really checks backgrounds of people could have allowed that woman to adopt.
Does anyone know what the rules were in 1993 regarding china adoptions?
